The Coolest Thing You Can Do As A San Diego Native Or Visiting Wave Rider.

This surf trip is awesome. Captaining these epic surf trips reminds me of Captain Tony Montana. He would take my groups out to the awesome reef break off Nusa Lembongan in Indonesia. I remember jumping off the boat to surf and thought it was the coolest thing.

Now... I'm your Tony Montana. Like all Epic Surf Trips, I'm all about respect, safety, finding waves, and having as much fun as possible. This is something that most San Diego surfers have yet to do. Here's your opportunity to experience something really damn cool.

Plus, I'll be pointing out a ton of iconic sights on San Diego Bay with some history to boot. San Diego is "America's Finest City" and this is another very awesome adventure to back up our city's motto.

Respecting the surfers that have been going to these sacred waves for decades, you will be briefed on surfing etiquette, safety and respect.

On the way out to the sacred breaks, you will be briefed on the breaks and more importantly, respect. Respecting the locals, the reefs, and mother nature is just shy of our priority… SAFETY. When the waves are pumping, we could expect a crowd out there. On the other hand, we could end up being the only ones in the line up. Either way, and I'll say it again, respect is right up there with safety.

Manny's local knowledge and experience makes him a phenomenal host. It felt like a mini tour of the stunning bay as we voyaged out to the breaks. The group size was perfect and we felt privelaged to have a break all to ourselves.


Epic Boat Trip

We are so happy we did this Epic Boat Trip! We all grew up in San Diego but we had never seen this side of it and we were stoked to check it out! Manny is the best boat captain you could hope for! Not only is he a surfer who embodies the aloha spirit but he's a knowledgeable local as well! It doesn't get any better than this! Whether you're brand new to the area or an old native like me, you're going to love seeing the surf from this new angle! We can't wait to do another trip with Manny!


Epic Boat Trip

Empty waves, super safe guiding, and a glorious morning at sea, what more could we ask for? As always, the most amazing surf day with Captain Manny. His local knowledge is unbeatable and his love for surfing and the water are so evident. Thank you for another epic boat trip and helping us to find a spot all to ourselves. We'll need a recovery day or 2 for the arms, and then we'll be back for sure.
